Greenville, SC-- A woman who was charged with hitting and killing a state Department of Transportation worker in South Carolina was sentenced Monday.
Investigators said Misty Dawson was driving while impaired when she hit the DOT employee, Noah Lark who was working on Laurens Road under the I-85 bridge in Greenville.
Monday a judge sentenced Dawson to 18-years suspended on the service of 11 years and five years probation, according to CBS station WSPA.
A day after her arrest, Dawson told a judge that before the wreck she took medication for nausea and pain, and left work sick.
She was released on a $25,000 bond.
One month later, Dawson's bond was revoked when she was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
